First Look: X-FORCE #1

Get a look at the latest incarnation of the mutant strike team.

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at X-FORCE #1 – the exciting new series from innovative creative team Si Spurrier and Rock-He Kim! Every sovereign nation in the Marvel Universe makes use of superhumans to protect national interests and pursue a covert national agenda. The stakes are high, and the prizes are intelligence, security, resources and power. Now, Cable and his new black-ops squad are entering this endless shadow-game to ensure that Mutants have a hand in the future of the Marvel Universe – by any means necessary!

“They don’t want global domination nor mutant superiority; merely to protect and strengthen the interests of The Mutant Nation,” says writer Si Spurrier, in an interview with Marvel.com. “And they’ll rain thunder and flame on anyone who says different.”

“X-Force isn’t looking to keep its existence a secret,” says Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “They want to send a loud-and-clear message to the world that the Mutant Nation is not to be messed with.”

But when an international incident threatens the already fragile human/mutant relations, the Mutant Nation needs a dirty tricks department – and X-Force is it! Don’t miss the explosive action and political intrigue when Cable, Psylocke, Fantomex, and Marrow burst on to the scene in X-FORCE #1 this February!

it looks interesting and nice that there is only one X-Force book now. But how did Marrow get her powers back?

Posted by dagmar_merrill

I really like how it looks, defiantly a style that could grow on me.

Edited by Dernman

That's Marrow? What happened to her? What's her powers now?

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

Man love the art style

Posted by kit07

Does anyone know what's happening to the current run of Cable & X Force?

Posted by GrandSymbiote94

The art is beautiful.

Am I really the only one who thinks this is some of the ugliest comic art ever?

Marvel's really annoyin' me with their covers nowadays.

Posted by SummersBlood

@kit07: Both Cable & X Force and Uncanny X-Force are cancelled after the current 'Vendetta' crossover concludes, to be replaced by this incarnation.

Looks nice. I want this book.

The artist is Korean. That might have something to do with it.

Hopefully this fills my X-Men Legacy shaped hole in my heart.

Posted by micah

Art style fits the gritty tone

Posted by Z3RO180

So has cable now got a cyborg arm ?

Edited by Maddpanda531

That is some beautiful art! What does it mean by "The Mutant Nation"? Is it like Utopia or Genosha or is there something else?

Edited by ganthet2814

Looks cool. May have to add this to my list.

Dreadful.

Posted by TheAmazingImmortalMan

Art looks amazing and plot sounds interesting

Posted by victorcheenoanleu

@xwraith: horrible, only reason I'm not gonna bother picking it up

The art tends to flip between amazing (the panels with Cable) and awkward (the close ups of Marrow). I trust in Spurrier's ability to craft consistently brilliant scripts so I'm all over this. I'm loving the Metal Gear-esque Variant cover.

Does anyone know where Colossus is heading to, He was the only reason I was reading Cable and X-Force, now it would appear he is gone from X-Force. I hope he goes to one of the other X-men books and just doesn't fade into the background.

Posted by Renchamp

This is a no-brainer for me. I'm in.

I don't like it either.

Not sure, but I really wana know where he's going too. Uncanny seems like a logical choice, but I believe Bendis shot that down

Kinda sucks though. I really like CatXF lineup right now.

who is the drone? looks like he/she/it is going to be a character.

In Spurrier I trust.

I'd really like to see him go to Amazing X-men I feel like that would be really interesting.

I'd be down for that - especially given how well its started.

my god the art its so so good dam it now i wont to check it out now just for the art (just like a did thor god of thunder and now its on my poll)

Posted by ScarletBatman

This went from the top of my want list to the bottom. That art is... It isn't ugly but it is definitely not what I want. Not at all.

Posted by clubberlang

I am going to miss Dr. Nemesis and forge talking smack to each other. I dug uncanny xforce then it ended now I like cable xforce and it ends. I hope this one is as good, maybe I'll grow to like marrow.

Posted by Perfect 10

dont get why people are obssessed with cable NOT having powers and HAVING a mechanical arm. what's the point of curing him (which they've done several times i might add) only to regress him to nothing. the coolest cable has been was in x-force when they had the purple and gold uniforms, cable and deadpool. he can have his powers (he is a mutant) and still use guns, heck bishop, dominoe, hope and others do it all the time. glad they are bringing marrow back but..where the heck are dominoe, hope and boom boom?

Posted by clayscarface

I am going to miss Psylocke being in one of my regular books, but I don't think I want to follow this. Definitely not my art style and I've never been a fan of Cable or Marrow. I'm also interested where Colossus is going...Amazing would be a cool choice given the friendship with Colossus and Nightcrawler.

Posted by HexThis

I love Marrow but where on earth is Tabitha? Don't put her in limbo again, Marvel. My heart can't take it.

Posted by ArtisticNeedham

I really like the Animal X-Force. That should get its own comic... for the kids.

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

I'm not 100% sold on this title…I love the art, I'm a fan of Cable, Psylocke, and Fantomex, but I'm not completely sold on the story and I don't like the fact that Hope, Domino, Colossus, Forge, and Dr. Nemesis are gone along with Bishop and Puck!

Edited by New_World_Order

I love the art!

Posted by JonSmith

Question is: Is Cable an independent force? Because projecting a strong image of the Mutant Nation sounds right up Cyclops' alley.

Posted by bunkerbuster05

Ugh damn you Phil Noto. You're just too talented.

Posted by TheManInTheShoe

Ugly art, sadly

Posted by Scantenii

I won't pick up this book until it gets a new artist.

Posted by thebearking

Damn it, I really enjoyed the Domino and Colossus' dynamic, which will now be completely forgotten about as just another sexual encounter for Domino rather than an actual relationship. Which sucks, hopefully where ever they go, they'll go together.

Edited by Lykida

I'm still sceptical. The line-up of the other books was so great. What happens to Colossus, Hope, Forge, Dom, Boomer, Spiral and Puck. I really hope Pete and Neena stay together...

And why Marrow? Just why....

Posted by Outside_85

Only thing I dont really like about how this looks is the belt Cable wears around his head.
